There is a thriving table tennis section at Lowlands Club.

Lowlands is a private members’ club. It is not open to the general public but you can become a member by completing an application form which you can download from the Membership section and returning it to info@lowlandsclub.com

The hall provides excellent playing conditions and in normal times, up to three tables could be set out for group practice sessions; however as at 17/05/2021 this is restricted to two tables until further relaxation of Covid measures. On match nights, a maximum of two tables are set out.

Lowlands field a number of teams in the Wembley and Harrow Table Tennis League and further information will be provided in due course on formats and schedule of play - it is hoped that later in the summer, further relaxation of Covid measures will permit a full return to League competition(s) after the disruption caused by the pandemic. League matches are held on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings starting at 7.30 pm.

New members are always welcome throughout the year. We have a range of styles and playing abilities at the club so if you are looking to play competitively, for fun, enjoyment and the exercise that competitive sport provides, contact Geraint Hughes via e-mail: tabletennis@lowlandsclub.com

All Table Tennis Club members are encouraged to participate in a wide range of social events which the Club organises.

Note for members: Following the removal of Government restrictions on 19/07/21 and in line with the Club announcement on 20/07/21, the wearing of face coverings on the premises is now a matter for personal choice but is advised in crowded public spaces. Table tennis players should continue to scan the QR Code or sign in at the front door and use hand sanitiser.

Table Tennis England recommend that a record of attendees at all TT sessions should be kept, as self-isolation requirements remain in place. Therefore for the time being, until further notice, all requests for table tennis bookings MUST first be confirmed by contacting Geraint Hughes by WhatsApp or text to 07710 533101. Please ensure you check the Social/ Events Calendar on the Lowlands website before requesting a table booking to check that the hall is free for your chosen time(s).Please provide players’ full names, together with booking date and time. Plan ahead - usually at least 24 hours notice is required.

A maximum of six players can be in the hall, playing on two tables and may mix between tables. Doubles play is now allowed.

Maximise ventilation in the hall by keeping the doors into the corridor held open.

After you have finished your session please wipe down the table(s) using a mild well diluted detergent e.g.Fairy liquid. Please bring your own hygiene products as those left in the hall for players’ use tend to walk!

After playing, tables MUST be returned to the storeroom after every session. The hall is multifunctional and Table Tennis players should be aware that other hall users have bookings.
